When registering and playing at online casinos, you need to deposit money to play the games. Each online casino has a minimum and maximum deposit and withdrawal limit. Since the amount varies from one online casino to another, it is important to read the banking page to see what are the policies of your chosen online casino on this topic.

Payment Method Fees

The wide array of payment methods such as credit and debit cards, e-wallets, mobile pay, and bank transfers is a massive advantage that online casinos have. However, some methods may come with fees on withdrawals.

E-wallets such as Skrill, Neteller, and Klarna are among the methods that even though provide you with instant transactions, they come with fees on withdrawals. So, while you are at the banking page, make sure to check whether fees are applied or not. Also, it is worth checking what is the processing time of withdrawals. Each payment method comes with a certain processing time which is often between 1-3 business days. Bank transfers are the only ‘slower’ withdrawal method as their average processing time is 5 days.
